Neoen Australia has filed planning documents for a 500 MW / 1000 MWh big battery to be built west of Sydney.

The project, which Neoen is calling the ‘Great Western Battery,’ would be Australia’s largest battery storage project by a long shot.

The French renewables developer claims the project “Would operate unlike any other device currently connected to the NSW network and would provide a range of services.” Revealed by planning documents filed on December 15, 2020, Neoen is seeking consent to construct, operate and maintain a Battery Energy Storage System of 500 MW and up to 100 MWh at 173 Brays Lane, Wallerawang, New South Wales.
